Adani Green ‘switches on’ 390MW hybrid power plant
It is the first wind and solar hybrid power generation plant in India.
Adani Green Energy Limited, through its subsidiary Adani Hybrid Energy Jaisalmer One Limited, has commissioned the first 390-megawatt wind and solar hybrid power plant in India.
“Wind-Solar Hybrid energy is an important aspect of our business strategy which aims to meet India’s growing need for green energy,” Vneet S. Jaain, MD & CEO, Adani Green Energy Ltd, said.
“The commissioning of our hybrid plant is an incremental step towards meeting India’s sustainable energy goals.”
The hybrid power plant, located in Rajasthan, seeks to harness the full potential of renewable energy by addressing issues on the intermittency of power generation.
The new plant is under Power Purchase Agreement with the Solar Energy Corporation of India with tariff at INR2.69 per kilowatt-hour (kWh). This is well below the Average Power Procurement Cost at national level, the company noted.
Moreover, the hybrid plant has an operational capacity of 5.8 gigawatts, bringing AGEL’s total renewable portfolio of 20.4 GW closer to its vision of 45 GW capacity by 2030.
The Adani Group’s Energy Network Operation Centre (ENOC) platform has consistently demonstrated and aided the Group in achieving superior operational performance of the entire renewables portfolio spread across various locations in India.
The ENOC platform will be instrumental in delivering industry-leading performance through this newly commissioned wind-solar hybrid power plant.
